Your Download Lowdown – Christmas 2010 Version

A great and timely download from the great folks at the Line of Best Fit. A merry follow up to last year’s Ho Ho Ho Canada, Ho Ho Canada Deux hopes to provide an antidote to hearing the same old Christmas tunes year after year. Thirty festive tracks in all including fifteen songs that have been specially recorded for them.

From the Line of Best Fit:

The compilation includes new compositions, covers, traditional songs (including one in Norwegian), the occasional curse word (you have been warned), and sleigh bells and festive cheer aplenty. We’d like to thank all of the artists involved for their time and effort in putting this together-please be sure to click on their names to find out more about them and find out what they are up to in the next few months. The artwork was created by Jon Janes using an image of Clear Creek, Yukon by Michael Edwards.
